Sonoma Gets Red Carpet Ready

Who needs Hollywood?

Come Sunday, there'll be plenty of glamour right here in the heart of wine country when the Sonoma Valley Film Society (sonomafilmfest.org) presents "Night at the Oscars," a black tie-optional gala and live broadcast of the 80th Annual Academy Awards in downtown Sonoma.  Guests are invited to walk the red carpet beginning at 3:30pm, after which they'll be treated to a "multicourse epicurean feast" and "megascreen live broadcast" of the awards, according to the society's web site.

Tickets don't come cheap - they're going for $250 a head - but the Oscars don't come around often, either (nor does the chance to walk a red carpet, for that matter).  After the telecast guests can expect dessert and dancing followed by an after-party, proving that, against all odds, wine country is poised to burn the midnight oil.  It doesn't get much more Hollywood than that, folks.
